A new vehicle and an overhauled engine require a “break-in” period. The first 10 hours (or 200 miles) are most critical to the life of this vehicle. Proper operation during this break-in period will help assure maximum life and performance from the vehicle. During the first 10 hours (or 200 miles) of operation, always use less than 1/2 throttle. Varying the engine RPM during the break-in period allows the components to “load” (aiding the mating process) and then “unload” (allowing components to cool). Although it is essential to place some stress on the engine components during break-in, care should be taken not to overload the engine too often. Do not pull a trailer or carry heavy loads during the 10-hour break-in period. When the engine starts, allow it to warm up properly. Idle the engine several minutes until the engine has reached normal operating temperature. Do not idle the engine for excessively long periods of time. During the break-in period, a maximum of 1/2 throttle is recommended; however, brief full-throttle accelerations and variations in driving speeds contribute to good engine break-in. After the completion of the break-in period, the engine oil and oil filter should be changed. Other maintenance after break-in should include checking of all prescribed adjustments and tightening of all fasteners (see Periodic Maintenance Chart in Section 2).

Gasoline - Oil - Lubricant RECOMMENDED GASOLINE The recommended gasoline to use is 87 minimum octane regular unleaded. In many areas, oxygenates (either ethanol or MTBE) are added to the gasoline. Oxygenated gasolines containing up to 10% ethanol, 5% methane, or 5% MTBE are acceptable gasolines. When using ethanol blended gasoline, it is not necessary to add a gasoline antifreeze since ethanol will prevent the accumulation of moisture in the fuel system.

CAUTION Do not use white gas. Only Arctic Cat approved gasoline additives should be used.

RECOMMENDED ENGINE/ TRANSMISSION OIL

FILLING GAS TANK ! WARNING

CAUTION Any oil used in place of the recommended oil could cause serious engine damage. Do not use oils which contain graphite or molybdenum additives. These oils can adversely affect clutch operation. Also, not recommended are racing, vegetable, non-detergent, and castor-based oils.

Always fill the gas tank in a well-ventilated area. Never add fuel to the gas tank near any open flames or with the engine running. DO NOT SMOKE while filling the gas tank.

The recommended oil to use is Arctic Cat ACX All Weather synthetic engine oil, which has been specifically formulated for use in this Arctic Cat engine. Although Arctic Cat ACX All Weather synthetic engine oil is the only oil recommended for use in this engine, use of any API certified SM 5W-50 oil is acceptable.

ATV0049B

Since gasoline expands as its temperature rises, the gas tank must be filled to its specified capacity only. Expansion room must be maintained in the tank particularly if the tank is filled with cold gasoline and then moved to a warm area.

! WARNING OILCHARTI

RECOMMENDED FRONT DIFFERENTIAL/REAR DRIVE LUBRICANT The recommended lubricant is Arctic Cat Gear Lube or an equivalent gear lube which is SAE approved 80W-90 hypoid. This lubricant meets all of the lubrication requirements of the Arctic Cat vehicle front differential and rear drive.

Do not overflow gasoline when filling the gas tank. A fire hazard could materialize. Always allow the engine to cool before filling the gas tank.

Tighten the gas tank cap securely after filling the tank.

! WARNING Do not over-fill the gas tank.

Genuine Parts

CAUTION Any lubricant used in place of the recommended lubricant could cause serious front differential/rear drive damage.

When replacement of parts is necessary, use only genuine Arctic Cat parts. They are precision-made to ensure high quality and correct fit. Refer to the appropriate Illustrated Parts Manual for the correct part number, quantity, and description.

Preparation For Storage CAUTION Prior to storing the vehicle, it must be properly serviced to prevent rusting and component deterioration.

1. Clean the seat cushion (cover and base) with a damp cloth and allow it to dry. 1-5


2. Clean the vehicle thoroughly by washing dirt, oil, grass, and other foreign matter from the entire vehicle. Allow it to dry thoroughly. DO NOT get water into any part of the engine or air intake. 3. Either drain the gas tank or add Fuel Stabilizer to the gas in the gas tank. Remove the air filter housing cover and air filter. Start the engine and allow it to idle. Using Arctic Cat Engine Storage Preserver, rapidly inject the preserver into the air filter opening for a period of 10 to 20 seconds; then stop the engine. Install the air filter and housing cover.

CAUTION If the interior of the air filter housing is dirty, clean the area before starting the engine.

4. Plug the exhaust hole in the exhaust system with a clean cloth. 5. Apply light oil to the plungers of the shock absorbers. 6. Tighten all nuts, bolts, cap screws, and screws. Make sure rivets holding components together are tight. Replace all loose rivets. Care must be taken that all calibrated nuts, cap screws, and bolts are tightened to specifications. 7. Fill the cooling system to the bottom of the stand pipe in the radiator neck with properly mixed coolant. 8. Disconnect the battery cables; then remove the battery, clean the battery posts and cables, and store in a clean, dry area. 9. Store the vehicle indoors in a level position.

CAUTION Avoid storing outside in direct sunlight and avoid using a plastic cover as moisture will collect on the vehicle causing rusting.

Preparation After Storage Taking the vehicle out of storage and correctly preparing it will assure many miles and hours of trouble-free riding. 1. Clean the vehicle thoroughly. 2. Clean the engine. Remove the cloth from the exhaust system. 3. Check all control wires and cables for signs of wear or fraying. Replace if necessary. 4. Change the engine/transmission oil and filter. 5. Check the coolant level and add properly mixed coolant as necessary. 6. Charge the battery; then install. Connect the battery cables.

CAUTION The ignition switch must be in the OFF position prior to installing the battery or damage may occur to the ignition system.

CAUTION Connect the positive battery cable first; then the negative.

7. Check the entire brake systems (fluid level, pads, etc.), all controls, headlights, taillight, brakelight, and headlight aim; adjust or replace as necessary. 8. Tighten all nuts, bolts, cap screws, and screws making sure all calibrated nuts, cap screws, and bolts are tightened to specifications. 9. Check tire pressure. Inflate to recommended pressure as necessary. 10. Make sure the steering moves freely and does not bind. 11. Check the spark plug(s). Clean or replace as necessary.

CHECKING AND CLEANING DRAINS 1. Inspect one-way drains beneath the main housing for debris and for proper sealing. 2. Replace any one-way drain that is cracked or shows any signs of hardening or deterioration.

CAUTION The one-way drain to the left is the clean air section of the filter housing. Any leak of this drain will allow dirt into the engine intake causing severe engine damage.

3. Wipe any accumulation of oil or gas from the filter housing and one-way drains.

Valve/Tappet Clearance (H1) To check and adjust valve/tappet clearance, use the following procedure. NOTE: The engine must be cold for this procedure. NOTE: The seats, center console, spark plug, and air filter housing must be removed for this procedure.

1. Remove the spark plug and timing inspection plug; then remove the tappet covers (for more detailed information, see Section 3 - Servicing Top-Side Components). 2. Rotate the crankshaft to the TDC position on the compression stroke. NOTE: At this point, the rocker arms and adjuster screws must not have pressure on them.

Feeler Gauge Procedure Using a feeler gauge, check each valve/tappet clearance. If clearance is not within specifications, loosen the jam nut and rotate the tappet adjuster screw until the clearance is within specifications. Tighten each jam nut securely after completing the adjustment.

CAUTION The feeler gauge must be positioned at the same angle as the valve and valve adjuster for an accurate measurement of clearance. Failure to measure the valve clearance accurately could cause valve component damage. VALVE/TAPPET CLEARANCE Intake
